So why did the other presidents who had talked about Jerusalem becoming the capital of Israel never followed through with their intent? Probably because maybe it was never really their intent but the rhetoric was used just to make the Jewish people have that thought that finally there was a president who was really interested in making Jerusalem the capital but of course saying it and going through all the pressures from different groups of doing it is another story especially the Arab world. It took Trump to come along to do it and for one it was a campaign promise of his that Jerusalem would become the capital of Israel if he became president but more so than that what many people do not know about Trump especially his enemies is that he is a student of history and if anyone just remotely knows any history of the ancients will have in the back of their minds that Jerusalem through the ages have been occupied mainly by Jewish people and Trump knows that.
The following was posted by Jeff Dunetz, published by The Lid: “According to UNESCO, the Palestinians, and the Muslim States, Israel, and the Jewish People have no right to Jerusalem. It is this fake belief that until Donald Trump became president kept the U.S. from recognizing Jerusalem as the capital of Israel and the Jewish world. Most of the world outside America continues to believe the Palestinian/Muslim propaganda that ignores that the ancient Greeks, Romans, Christians, and even the ancient Muslims, reported Jerusalem and the Temple Mount were the property of the Jewish people.”
“Let’s start out with the basics. Jerusalem was NEVER part of a Palestinian State because there was never an independent state of Palestine. After the Bar Kochba revolt in 135 CE, the Romans punished the Judeans (Jews) for revolting for the second time in sixty years. They changed the name of their country from Judea to Syria Palaestina (after the ancient enemy of the Jews, the Philistines who were destroyed a thousand years earlier). At the same time, they changed the name of the holy city from Jerusalem to Aelia Capitolina (literally Capitoline Hill of the House of Aelius). After the Romans threw out many of the Jews, the holy land was ruled by the Byzantine Empire, the Ottoman Empire, and finally, the British mandate before it once again became a Jewish State in 1948. During all that time, the holy land including Jerusalem had a very large population of Jews.”
“During the period of 135 CE through 1948, which was when Jordan began to occupy Jerusalem, there were large populations of Jews in Jerusalem. In fact, beginning with the earliest information available (1844), there were more Jews in Jerusalem than any other faith.”
“To the ancient Muslim, Greek, and Roman pagan authors, Jerusalem was a Jewish city. Their text indicates the unanimous agreement that Jerusalem was Jewish by virtue of the fact that its inhabitants were Jews, it was founded by Jews, and the Temple located in Jerusalem was the center of the Jewish religion.”
Inasmuch as history supports the fact that Jerusalem was constantly occupied by the Jewish people you do not hear that from the mainstream media which should not be a surprise to anyone because they want to continue to push the minority Arab view that once again Israel is given something that is not supported in this case Jerusalem becoming the capital of Israel. So today that should be a day of celebration, instead of joy there are at least 58 Palestinians killed in protests and more than 2,700 demonstrators injured. This is because there was a mass attempt by thousands of these Palestinians trying to cross the border fence separating Israel from Gaza that turned violent. As you see from above this violence is not justified if you go by history because history does not justify it. What it’s all about is the hatred that the Palestinians and the Arab world have for Israel and the constant funding by Hamas to the Palestinians who in turn Hamas is funded by Iran. All this can be stopped if only the narrative of destroying Israel by the Arab world would stop. That’s all it would take and everyone would live in peace. The thing is hatred is influenced by the devil and if these people continue to accept the devil there will never be peace in the Middle East until the return of our Lord Jesus Christ and there is no explaining what will happen that day, the human race will either be ready or not and that my patriots is probably an understatement.
